Track Name: Dancing with the Branches
Rainy day just go away
Don’t come again next weekend.
Summer sun come shine on me and pour out all your loving.
Give me words give me verse
A song to show I love you.
We’ll bloom like flowers in the day and we’ll be the ones
Dancing with the branches.
Let’s walk through the forest, our hands held so tight.
We’ll taste the laughter in the air
Feel the green between our feet.
If there’s one thing I know it’s that you’re beautiful.
If there’s one thing I know, your love ain’t cheap.

Yeah, we’re so far from home and yet it’s so far so good.
And it’s so far so good because we’re so far from home.

My dear you’re living in the past
I saw you there the other day.
Out in the open wisdom calls
I heed the words she says. Oh!
See I was too once my father’s son still tendered by my mother.
Now those days are so numbered as I grow in age.

Yeah, we’re so far from home and yet it’s so far from good.
And it’s so far from good because we’re so far from home.
So far from home and yet it’s so far from good.
And it’s so far from good because we’re so far from home.
Home.
Track Name: Cold Hands
Cold Hands – Jordan Raycroft

You ask me where I’m going. I say, ‘I’m doing time.
They’ve got me on a leash now honey,
They’re tearing through my mind yeah.’
They say they got me murder of the first degree.
They got me praying forgiveness now.
They want me on my knees yeah.

Oh, the storms a comin’ now,
You best be running now.
Look out! The storms a comin’ down.
You best be running now!

So there I sat with cold hands caressing my gun and I said,
“Boy, you don’t know what you’ve done!”
See I’m a man of my word, and I’m a preachers son,
and I’m gonna put you down for what you’ve gone and done!

And I said, “Oh, the storms coming now,
You best be running now.”
“Look out, the storms coming around.
I’m gonna hunt you down!”

The devil and his order are tugging at my feet and I cry,
“Lord, Lord, come and save me!”
The devil and his order are tugging at my feet and I cry,
“Lord, Lord, come and save me!”
The devil and his order are tugging at my feet and I cry,
“Lord, Lord, come and save me!”

And I said, “Oh, the storms coming now,
You best be running now!”
Look out! The storms a comin’ around,
I’m gonna shoot you down!”
Track Name: We the People
I’ve seen stars in the night sky.
I’ve seen moonlight shine on down over God’s life.
If you ask me I will tell you
Of a truth that’s incomparable to the likes of you.

And I’ve seen storms a’ brewing.
I’ve seen people suing.
I’ve seen fire.
And I’ve been counting wages.
I’ve been passing pages on the wire.
If you ask me I will tell you of a truth
That is so undeniable - even for you.

Love your friend hate your enemy.
Isn’t this how our world says it should be?
How can they say they’ve done it right?
When there’s people, all the people they’re all running,
Watch they’re running for their life.

And I’ve seen storms a’ brewing.
I’ve seen people suing.
I’ve seen fire.
And I’ve been counting wages.
I’ve been passing pages on the wire.
And if you ask me I will tell you of a truth
That is so undeniable - even for you.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

No matter what the people say
It's all the same bad things don’t change themselves.
No matter where the people grow
We grow the same we’re all the same.
No matter what the people say
It’s time we dropped to our knees and pray.
No matter where the people grow
He loves us the same.
Track Name: Letters
I'm not quite sure what I should feel anymore.
It's been two hard months since you walked from my door.
And though it's a third of the time that we shared
I just want to know if your heart is still there.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh

I've seen you running babe you're chasing that sun.
When you get there write me letters.

Let your hair down on my face
And we'll let our love grow in this place.
Put your hands back into mine and
I'll write you love songs
If you'll send me letters.

I wrote this song for you,
It's not quite a Yellow but hell it's blue.
It seems I've been running out of words to sing.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh

I've seen you running babe you're chasing that sun.
When you get there write me letters.

Let your hair down on my face
And we'll let our love grow in this place.
Put your hands back into mine and
I'll write you love songs
If you'll send me letters.

And I’ll write you love songs
If you’ll send me letters.
I'll sing you love songs
If you'll write me letters.
Track Name: I'm Yours
Father, forgive the lies I've lived I've made a fool.
I've fallen short I've broke your heart while you loved on mine.
Lord you made me, take me and break me.
Lord, I'm yours.

Lord, I'm yours

God, give me hands of justice that I might help the weak.
Your Holy Spirit in me God, give me words to speak

Lord you made me, take me and break me.
Lord, I'm yours. (I’m yours, I’m yours)

Lord, I'm yours (I’m yours, I’m yours)
Lord, I'm yours (I’m yours, I’m yours)
Lord, I'm yours (I’m yours, I’m yours)

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Lord, I’m yours.

Father, forgive the lies I’ve lived I’ve made a fool.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Lord, I’m yours, I’m yours, I’m yours
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Lord, I’m yours.
Track Name: Silence is Golden
Some would say I should be concerned
That the knowledge I have learned
Is not from books my blood and
Cold sweat have earned.
Who's to say I should give a damn
About the children in this land
Who've never seen the love from their own mother’s hands?

Well, if silence is golden then
It’s gold I want not.
Well, if silence is golden
You’re a fool for being bought.
Well, if silence is golden then it’s gold
They have got.

Children naked in the streets,
Women begging at your feet to
Give you their love so they can eat.

Well, if silence is golden
Then it’s gold I want not.
Well, if silence is golden
You’re a fool for being bought.
Well, If silence is golden
Then its gold they have got.
Well, if Silence is Golden
We're all fools for being bought.
Track Name: Dingoes
I lost my baby to the dingoes down under -
In a land where golden coasts meet the shore.
And up here with the North Folk I'll freeze here and wonder how
I lost that girl to the land down under.

She took my hand.
She made me her man.
I thought it was love from the start.
We took our picture and I picked her flowers,
While she fed my heart to those dogs down under.

I lost my baby to the dingoes down under -
In a land where golden coasts meet the shore.
And up here with the North Folk I'll freeze here and wonder how
I lost that girl to the land down under.

Blue-eyed-blonde-beaut,
Good Lord, you could make me mute
With words that you sang in my ear.
But, don't you be flattered that this song is about ya!
Cause’ you fed my heart to those dogs down under.

See I lost my baby to the dingoes down under -
In a land where golden coasts meet the shore.
And up here with the North Folk I'll freeze here and wonder how
I lost that girl to the land down under.
Track Name: Michael
Hey Mr.Tinman,
Please loan me your heart it seems I’ve broken mine.
I roll like the thunder and I cry like a lark,
I’ve failed to keep time.
And it’s been so long since I’ve called her my own,
I know she’s alright.

She stole, she stole, she stole, she stole,
My heart.

Hey Mr. Lionheart,
I’m not afraid I’m just not as brave as you.
You’ve seen the waterline leaving the shore while I can barely roar.

She stole, she stole, she stole, she stole,
My heart.

Hey Mr. Scarecrow,
Give me your mind because I’m loosing mine.
They’re calling it insanity and I blame it on calamity.
I’ve never been so down.

She stole, she stole, she stole, she stole,
My heart.

Hey Mr. Tinman,
Please loan me your heart it seems I’ve broken mine.
Track Name: 58 Edinburgh
Man all dressed in suit and tie calls his wife.
No, he won't be coming home tonight.
Dishonest are his words that he bets on.
Immoral writing verse still sweeps the weekend.

We'll chase the day,
We’ll chase the day,
We’ll chase the day,
But not now.

But not now, but not now, but not now

Empty pews of blue and gold face my eyes.
They mourn the loss of sunshine to winter's white
People in the streets return to their holes
They fear the ghost of summer and what it beholds

We'll chase the day,
We’ll chase the day,
We’ll chase the day,
But not now.

But not now, but not now, but not now

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (x4)
Track Name: Amazon Woman
Don’t you tell me that it’s over, don’t you swear we’ve had our run.
Cause it’s not the same without you babe and
Without you I’m always wrong

See big waves they’ve come before us,
But between you and me they won’t make it through this chorus
They’ll be begging at our feet

You could be my amazon woman
And I could be your guitar pickin’ man
You’d be my sweet little gal’
We’ll be dancing in the end

The orange lilies in your garden
Oh, good Lord they taunt me still.
So won’t you lay me down beside them and
Let our love have her will?

It may seem that I have fled from your side before
But, I tell you now with truth with babe that I’ve never
I’ve never left your door.

Say you’ll be my Amazon woman
So I can be your guitar pickin’ man
You’ll be my sweet little gal’
We’ll be dancing in the end

I will be your Amazon woman
You can be my guitar pickin’ man
And I’ll be your sweet little gal’
We’ll be dancing in the end
